A week after professional pressure started to drop back, things have taken a serious turn for the better as you step into the new week. If things feel different from the get go and there is a sense that something has shifted over the weekend you are right. The professional year in effect as you went into the weekend is not the professional year you encounter as you emerge n the other side. This is something that is still evolving, with Mars' return to your work sector on Sunday a game changer. Mars is still in his first 24 hours on Monday so you will still be getting a feel for his work passions, fighting and competitive spirit, something you haven't felt in nearly two years. With Venus returning to your work sector on Wednesday, the Sun on Friday, Juno over the weekend and Mercury next week, conditions on the job front are literally improving and expanding by the day.
After last week's Full Moon in your career sector there is a need to take a hands off approach, knowing that most things triggered by a Full Moon don't complete or come to fruition until the Moon comes full circle. This Full Moon only wrapped up just as you were about to move into the weekend, so with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled this has given you a few days to unwrap and process the valuable clues, hunches and insights delivered. In the meantime, this allows you to trust your professional instincts as the asteroid Pallas Athena moves into her final week in your work sector on Monday. Here since last November Pallas, goddess of wisdom is helping to prepare for significant new developments on the job front next month. By the time the Moon comes full circle from last week's Full Moon, Venus and Mercury will be just hours away from your work sector, with a chance this week to learn what you can, while taking a wait and see approach.
The tail end of the Moon's visit to your career sector over the weekend will graze the early hours of the week, making this more something that is ending as the week begins. Yet as the Moon leaves, this will allow you to begin the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled and a better a read on an alignment between the North Node and Neptune, that is still running its course. It was just as you were moving into the weekend that the North Node, on his own in your income sector after Mercury left last Monday, moved into a friendly alignment with Neptune, in retrograde motion in your career sector. This is just the second time they have come together here in our lifetime, the first time being earlier in the year. This is giving you an important chance to regroup, with the Moon leaving you with a window into how the major forces influencing things on the income and professional fronts are settling into position.
The Moon's return to your career sector in the early hours of the week is an advantage and not just because this allows you to begin the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled. Before leaving on Wednesday, the Moon will align with both planets in retrograde motion here in your career sector, while moving into a friendly aspect to Jupiter, a week after turning direct in your work sector and to the planets as they prepare to leave your income sector. Before leaving on Wednesday the Moon will move into a friendly aspect to Venus, in her final hours in your income sector. This comes just as an alignment between Mercury and Jupiter is creating a positive alignment of income and job forces. All of a sudden, things are coming together across the income, work and career fronts and the Moon is giving you access to all of it. This includes a sense of where you've been and where to from here.
A week after Uranus turned retrograde in your career sector early last week, Saturn moves into his final month in retrograde motion in your work sector, with a short crossover period between the two. For the next month, all planets in your two professional houses are in retrograde motion at the same time and while Pluto will turn direct in your work sector in early October, Uranus will remain in retrograde motion for the rest of the year. Yet whether it is Uranus just entering his retrograde phase or Saturn and Pluto nearing the end of theirs, all three have something in common. The first thing they have in common is a lack of speed. Uranus had to come to a standstill in order to turn retrograde and it will take weeks to gain any kind of movement. At the same time, Saturn and Pluto are slowing down, needing to come to a standstill in order to turn direct. The second thing they have in common is a growing sense of confidence and stability, with the third being the growing amount of support as the faster planets begin returning to your income sector.
After last week's Full Moon in your work sector you might find that you are playing a waiting game, waiting for things influenced by a surge last week to run their course. Look back at what was developing or happening on the job front between Wednesday and Friday last week and where, after a lot of hype at the time things have gone quiet. What is triggered by a Full Moon takes time to run its course and often it is not until the Moon comes full circle four weeks later that everything falls into place. It is a little like putting all the ingredients of a cake together, then having to wait once it has been put in the oven. This is where things are now on the job front, quietly baking in the professional gods' cosmic oven. Continue to keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, but let things run their course. There will be a chance to get a read on career matters later in the week, with the Moon spending the weekend in your career sector.
The Moon might leave your work sector just as you move into the new week but this is an advantage you will retain all week. This is more that the tail end of a visit over the weekend will graze the early hours of the week, allowing you to begin the week with an intuitive read on work and job matters and the timing couldn't be better. A week after Mercury left your career sector, the North Node is now in charge of keeping things moving in an empowered sense of professional direction. What made the timing of the Moon's return to your work sector last week so auspicious, is that it came just as the North Node was moving into an alignment with Neptune in your work sector, which is just coming to an end as the Moon leaves. This is only the second time in our lifetime that the North Node and Neptune have come together here, so to have the Moon move through, giving you a window into a regrouping of the major forces in play on the job and career fronts is serendipitous.
As if posing for a cosmic photo op or a group photo, the planets that came together on the career front last week are already dispersing. It was Mercury's return to your career sector last Monday that kicked off a six day period where every planet that will visit your career sector in 2019 were all here at the same time. This was the first time that the faster moving planets had come together at the same time, anywhere in your chart in nearly two years. This came just as Jupiter was turning direct in your income sector, providing the professional support as the lights turned green on the income front. Mars left your career sector on Sunday and with Venus leaving on Wednesday, the Sun on Friday, Juno over the weekend and Mercury next week, this is the week where you are now tying up loose ends. Fortunately the Moon returns to your work sector on Monday, drawing in resources from across the income, work and career fronts.
The professional year that you left when you moved into the weekend is not the professional year that greets you as you move into the weekend and if it feels like everything has changed overnight, that's because it has. The shift only came on Sunday and as you move into the new week Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos is still in his first 24 hours in your career sector. With Venus returning on Wednesday, the Sun on Friday, Juno over the weekend and Mercury next week, what Mars has opened the doors to is a flood of new opportunities, energy and potential on the career front. This comes just a week after Uranus' retrograde turn in your work sector, gave work and job matters a chance to take a back seat and let career matters drive things. This is good news on the income front as well, with the Moon's return to your work sector on Thursday giving you a chance put out feelers across the income, work and career fronts, no doubt liking what you sense.
All is quiet on the professional front this week or at least it is business as usual, though with a scurry of activity over the weekend. That activity has less to do with whether you are working through the weekend or not and more because of the download of information you will be receiving. After 10 months in your career sector, the asteroid Pallas Athena moves into her final week on Monday but you are unlikely to notice any urgency. As the goddess of wisdom, Pallas has been on a knowledge, experience and wisdom gathering mission since she returned last November, taking in and learning from all the experiences across the income, work and career fronts in that time. This is preparation for the Sun, Mercury and Venus' return to your career sector next month and Mars' in early October, which is when you will draw on what you have learned under Pallas' watch. The Moon's return to your work sector over the weekend will allow for an information download during Pallas' final days.
A week after Mercury left your work sector last Monday you are still discovering more information and insight. This is partly because after months of planetary activity as a parade of planets moved through, the implications are still playing out and are still being revealed. While there are no more planets in your work sector the North Node, here until May 2020 is quietly keeping things on track and is watching over things as they continue to play out. The week begins with the North Node in a friendly aspect to Neptune, in retrograde motion in your income sector. With Neptune the force behind everything on the income front this year and the North Node the force behind everything on the job front, they had a chance to regroup over the weekend. That this came just days after the last planet left your work sector meant there was a chance to come out of the trenches and look at the big picture.
When Jupiter turned direct in your career sector in the early hours of last week, it was just as Mercury's return to your work sector brought every planet that will visit this year, together at the same time. Just to have the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Juno in your work sector at the same time was extraordinary but to have them come together just as Jupiter turned direct in your career sector was stunning. This was the support Jupiter needed as the professional tide turn. Those planets are already starting to disband, starting with Mars' departure from your work sector over the weekend. With Venus leaving on Wednesday, the Sun on Friday, Juno over the weekend and Mercury next week, by next Friday they will all be gone. Yet each day spent in direct motion is making Jupiter stronger and as each planet leaves your work sector another trainer wheel can be removed. The faster planets might be leaving but what has been unleashed across the income, work and career fronts is taking on a life of its own.
